Owners of restaurant called ‘danger to public health’ no-show for health department hearing

Up to Code

A month after the health department shut them down, a Westerville Family Dollar store is back Up to Code.

Owners of a Columbus restaurant fail to show up for an important hearing with health department officials.

Plus, we honor the Top Dog of hotdogs with the coveted NBC 4 Up To Code Award.

On August 15, NBC 4 Investigator Tom Sussi told you why the Franklin County Public Health Department issued operators of Delicias Grill, 375 Georgesville Road, an emergency cease and desist order. 

Health officials said it’s an “immediate danger to the public.” We’re talking trays of uncovered meats holding at a dangerous 52 degrees, bugs crawling on food cutting board, filthy floors and stacks of dirty dishes.

Six days later, the restaurant re-opened.

But on August 28, during a follow up inspection, inspectors didn’t like what they spotted, and today the restaurant’s operators had a scheduled administrative hearing with the health department. They were no-shows. Stay tuned.

Over to the Family Dollar store, 5950 Westerville Road, Westerville. On August 15, the Franklin County Public Health Department shut them down over repeated critical violations.

Like dirty and grimy shelves, floors and ceilings, holes in the wall and cluttered and dirty bathroom and storage areas.

Well, Family Dollar is Back Up To Code, and open for business.

Now, it’s time to present the coveted NBC 4 Up To Code Award. This week’s recipient? Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace, 248 South Fourth Street.
